LPN Programs in Mississippi

Mississippi LPN Training

Mississippi LPN training is a specialized course of education used to prepare individuals to become licensed practical nurses. While doctors and nurses shoulder most of the responsibility for diagnosis and treatment in a hospital setting, it is LPNs and medical assisting staff that are often charged with carrying out these treatment plans and making the patient as comfortable as possible in the process. For those who have always enjoyed medical science and like communicating with and helping people, this could be a good career path
